Top Kaua‘i’ Golf Courses
Kaua‘i Lagoons Golf Club in Līhuʻe is a 27-hole Jack Nicklaus course that starts off with the longest stretch of ocean holes in Hawai‘i. This 18-hole loop with an extra nine is brutally challenging, with the first nine holes, dubbed the “Moana Nine,” taking you over ocean inlets and rocky coastlines. The second nine turns into the prevailing winds and takes you over two more par-3 and par-4 water beasts. The Prince Course at Princeville boasts amazing ocean vistas and a waterfall. Narrow holes twist through dense jungle, challenging you “do or die” pars. Po‘ipu Bay Golf Course in Kauai is famed for the PGA Grand Slam of Golf, with Tiger Woods winning it seven times. This Robert Trent Jones, Jr. course is the windiest on the island, and finishes with three holes along a 150-foot, rugged sea cliff.
Municipal Kaua‘i Golf Courses
Not to be outdone by the top brass, the historic Wailua Municipal Golf Course in Kaua’i was voted by Golf Digest as one of Hawai‘i’s 15 best courses.
